Al-Mehdawi v Secretary of State for the Home Department [1989]

Facts

  • A solicitor failed to communicate a letter telling Al-Mehdawi the date of a court hearing, so he failed to attend court (old address)

Issue

  • Could the decision made in Al-Mehdawi’s absence be quashed due to a lack of a defence

Decision

  • No, decision of the court upheld

Reasoning

  • It is not the fault of the court if there is no attendance
